This Year’s Films

The 15th Annual Big Water Film Festival, shown virtually over five weeks, from January 6, 2023, to February 10, 2023, is now complete.  Thanks so much to all of our filmmakers who contributed!  Here are our winners.  To see all of the films we showed, click here.


Thank you to all our businesses and individuals who have sponsored us in past years!  If you would like to sponsor the 15th Annual Big Water Film Festival, to be held virtually in January, 2023, we would definitely appreciate your financial support.  For more information on sponsorships, please click here.


Because the Festival this year will once again be virtual, we are not recruiting volunteers. We hope that next year we'll feel safe enough to return to some live events, in which case we will rely on volunteers to help out. To put your name on our volunteer list, please click here. We'll get in touch with you.
